CINCINNATI (AP) -Byung-Hyun Kim rejoined the Florida Marlins on Saturday, signing as a free agent 10 days after the Arizona Diamondbacks designated him for assignment.
The Diamondbacks claimed Kim off Waivers from the Marlins on Aug. 3.
The right-hander will get a couple of appearances out of the bullpen before moving into the rotation, manager Fredi Gonzalez said.
To open a roster spot, the Marlins optioned right-handed reliever Ross Wolf to Triple-A Albuquerque. The 24-year-old rookie was called up on Aug. 9 and made two appearances, giving up three hits and two runs in one inning.
Kim made only two starts for Arizona, which designated him for assignment after he retired only one batter in a 14-5 loss to the Marlins on Aug. 14.
``He enjoys pitching in South Florida,'' Gonzalez said. ``He enjoys being around the guys here. I think it'll be a good thing. We'll pitch him out of the 'pen the next couple of days and see how he feels.''
Kim is 6-6 with a 5.23 ERA this season. He started the year with Colorado, was traded to Florida on May 14 for reliever Jorge Julio, and went 5-3 with a 4.16 ERA with the Marlins before they waived him.
